Hello mentors and fonts-task-force,

Lately I'm working on cleaning my packages and one of them is the
ttf-breip [0] font, which is pretty much clean except that i'm having a
lintian warning about its watch file.
The thing is that the format of the url [1] is something similar to
http://host/release.zip where you can't see if it has a new release or
anything. And i don't know if i should add a lintian-override, add a
watch file with the url [1] anyway or to contact the upstream author and
ask him if he could change the URL to something where the watch file can
tell if there's a new version.
Recomendations and advices are welcome.
